Nasrallah Rejects Placing Preconditions on Dialogue: We Have No Enemies in Lebanon

إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Hizbullah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah slammed on Sunday “some sides' boycott of the national dialogue,” rejecting any preconditions being placed on the all-party talks.

He said in an indirect reference to the March 14-led opposition: “Some sides are approaching the dialogue in a condescending manner and we will adopt a similar approach to whoever adopts this attitude.”

“We are keen on stability, dialogue, and coexistence among all Lebanese as demonstrated by our actions,” he added during a speech marking the peak of the Ashoura rituals.

“We are keen on averting strife and Israel is our only enemy. We have no enemies in Lebanon,” he stressed.

“Political divisions exist, but we do not view any camp as an enemy,” he emphasized before the crowd that had been marking Ashoura on Sunday morning.

“We have always believed that political dialogue and communication is the best way to solve national, economic, and social crises in Lebanon. We have never once rejected dialogue,” Nasrallah continued.

He added that Hizbullah is prepared to comply with the call to resume dialogue that was issued on November 29.

The March 14 camp announced in October its boycott of government-related activity, including the national dialogue.

It started the boycott in protest against the assassination of Internal Security Forces Intelligence Bureau head Brigadier General Wissam al-Hasan on October 19.

It accused Syria of being behind the murder and has blamed the government, which is comprised of mainly Syria's allies, of covering up the crime.

Addressing regional developments, Nasrallah remarked: “Combating the American-Zionist threat is our primary priority.”

“Some sides in the Arab world are trying to present Israel as a friend and Iran as an enemy,” he cautioned.

“I warn some sides against turning enemies into friends and friends into enemies,” added Nasrallah.

“Be warned that anyone seeking to portray Iran as an enemy is serving Israel,” stressed the Hizbullah leader.

On the possibility of Israel waging a new attack on Lebanon, Nasrallah wondered: “How can Israel consider to attack Lebanon when it will be met with tens of thousands of rockets that will rain down on Tel Aviv and other Israeli territories?”

“A battle with Lebanon will reach the whole of Israel,” he declared.

As long as everyone knows their place and do not question our weapons, missions, and drones that we only send the info to Iran, and our unquestioned military advantage over everyone in Lebanon.. other than that we can talk about anything you want.. we can schedule a national dialogue session after the classico.. we can chat about the game. is that ok or is it NOT up for discussion as well?

A couple of points:

1) if he has no enemies, why are he and his crew armed to the hilt and hiding in caves?

2) What does HA want to do with the national dialogue--they go there for show and have NEVER consented to anything other parties want. So, what's the point again?

Nasrallah should have an actual press conference with questions posed to him by all people instead of his throwing out his points to a TV audience. He seems to have lost touch with reality.

He is the strongest man in lebanon today. Hence he can afford to "accept dialogue", pretend he has "no ennemies". Cosy and arrogant, he is using israel as an excuse to keep his weapons and control the country.

Wait till the geopolitics of the region change. His attitude will change.

Nothing endures but true democracy. The Hezbollah theocracy in Lebanon will fall.

I wonder who is the one that has been condescending and arrogant from the beginning, for years and years, and who has turned their arms already inside Lebanon? What a liar this guy is.

Lebanon doesn't need a war agenda, nor an Israel agenda, nor an Iran agenda, nor an Arab agenda. It just needs to be itself as an economically strong company. That's it. The Hezb agenda is old and finished. Israel doesn't give a damn about having a war with Lebanon unless they are provoked by the stupidity of Hezbollah.

israel and hezbis interests are to keep lebanon weak. hezbis so that they can manipulate their sheep and leaders and stay above the laws, obeying iranians as they see fit ; israel so that their economy is not affected and they can justify their need of us military support!

so both are allied against lebanon with the support of FPMers....

Israel has never wanted a war with the Government or Army of Lebanon, unfortunately it has been drawn into battles when Arafat and his Fatah terrorists were there in Beirut and then when Hizballah gained control of South Lebanon and started firing rockets into the north of Israel.
Israel I am sure would very much like to have friendly relations with the Republic of Lebanon.

Thumb jabal10452 25 November 2012, 19:54

I agree, and peace between Lebanon and Israel will eventually become a fact. Syria and Iran have been blocking any chance for peace for decades. The lebanese government is extremely weak and unable to take decisions that are solely in the country's interest. Hezbollah military wing is stronger than our national army. Peace will happen if and only if Syria and Iran's influence in Lebanon weaken dramatically.

"Be warned that anyone seeking to portray Iran as an enemy is serving Israel,” stressed the Hizbullah leader."

This is where Arab leaders have it wrong. If you criticize one side, it must mean that you are with the other side. In their eyes, there is no such thing as criticizing Iran without being referred to as a Zionist, or criticizing Israel without being called an Ayatollah worshipper.

Shameful.

You have no enemies and some minorities might view you as the most intelligent person within your level and ranks, the general popularity of Lebanon view you directly or indirectly as Mr obstructive of justice, using the Lebanese infrastructure system for your party's benefits, does not abide, support, and undermine the Lebanese state (i.e.Carry weapons, No paying electricity, and send drones on behalf of Iran).
You are being paid and financed by Iran and not the Lebanese state so that your party executes the Iranian agenda, if the Lebanese state/authorities stop the financing/arms then you will become unemployed. Your arms should belong to the Lebanese state and defending the land should be the role of the Lebanese state, if you exclusively trying to fight Israel then either move to Gaza or Golan and stop provoking the enemy without the permission of the owners of the land.
